the Metronome All Stars, and the 
Eddie Condon anf* Lionel Hampton 
jazz bands. 

The concert will be held in the 
south end of the Field House from

Gallery To Show 
Local Art Work 

The H & R Art Gallery, under 
the management of Robert Ringer 
'54 and Monroe Hall '55, opened 
this week showing works represent¬ 
ing local Vermont and New York 
State artists. 

Located in the Vermont Book 
Shop, the gallery is designed to 
make art works available to Mid¬ 
dlebury residents and students at 
reasonable prices. Contributors in¬ 
clude students and faculty members 
of the college, as well as residents 
of the area. 

Among the artists represented are 
Arthur (Healy, associate professor of 
fine arts; Patience Haley, curator 
of fine arts, Aron Pressman, who is 
associated with the (Russian Sum¬ 
mer School; and Sonia Sadron, 
representing New York State. 

Students interested in gelling 
paintings through the gallery are 
urged to inquire during regular 
Book Shop hours. 


fraternity functions will be deferr¬ 
ed until the completion of the con¬ 
cert. Jeremy Foss ’54, Blue Key 
president, revealed that the enter¬ 
tainment is being presented by the 
honor societies of both colleges in 
an effort to relieve any post-game 
tension that might develop, and for 
the general improvement of inter¬ 
collegiate relations. 

UVM's John Burke, Boulder So¬ 
ciety president, and Faith Abbey, 
Mortar Board president, report that 
the recital is being heavily pub¬ 
licized in Burlington over local ra¬ 
dio stations and about the UVM 
campus. Foss and Lois Wanstall 
’54, president of the Middlebury 
Mortar Board, explained that the 
concert represented a rather unique, 
cooperative effort at providing a 
friendly mixing place for students 
of the two colleges which might 
be continued in the future if it 
proved successful. 


SEPC Sponsors 
Education Panel 

The contrast between progressive 
types of education and the depart¬ 
mentalized system used here at Mid¬ 
dlebury Is the tentative topic of a 
panel discussion to be sponsored 
by the SEPC, announced Kenneth 
Morse, '54, last week. 

The discussion will be held In the 
South Lounge of the Student Union 
building, Thursday, Nov. 12, at 7 
p.m. 

Professor John Bowker, Dean of 
the Faculty, will represent the ad¬ 
ministration, Assistant Professor 
John Valentine, the faculty, and 
Donald Nason '54, and Jean-Marie 
McKenna '54, the student body. 
Each will give a five or ten minute 
informal talk. There will also be 
a question period. 

In discussing progressive educa¬ 
tion, Morse said, the panel will 
use as a point of departure the re¬ 
cently proposed Yale Plan. Ac¬ 
cording to this plan the first 
two years at college would be en¬ 
tirely spent studying such general 
subjects as contemporary civiliza¬ 
tion, literatures, and languages, and 
the last two years would be spent 
exclusively in study in the field of 
the chosen major. 


Eleven Groups 
Request Funds 

Middlebury's fourth annual Com¬ 
munity Chest Drive will begin Fri¬ 
day, November 6, and continue 
through November 14. A goal of 
$2800 has been set for this year’s 
drive, it was announced by Karl 
Llmbach ’54 and Marian Spaulding 
'54, co-chairmen. 

Organizations represented hi the 
coming drive are: American Friends 
Service Committee, American Heart 
Association, Japanese International 
Christian University, Jimmy Fund 
(Cancer Fund for children), March 
of Dimes. Also, the Negro College 
Fund, Porter Hospital, Red Cross, 
Salvation Army, World University 
Service Fund, and the Cerebral 
Palsy Fund. Contributions to char¬ 
ities, other than those listed above, 
will also be accepted. 

The Community Chest Is striv¬ 
ing, this year, not only for its $2800 
goal, but also for 100 per cent stu¬ 
dent contribution. Only 55 per cent 
of the college men and 85 per cent 
of the women contributed to last 
year’s drive which had as Its grand 
total, $2575. With the support of 
the entire student body, it would 
be possible to surpass this year’s 
goal. 

Community Chest workers will 
solicite in all dormitories and frat¬ 
ernity houses. The faculty, admini¬ 
stration, and the various campus or¬ 
ganizations will also be included in 
the drive. 

The present Community Chest 
system, adopted in 1950, is an at¬ 
tempt to centralize the soliciting of 
funds by individual charities which 
had previously had drives at many 
different times during the year. 

A Community Chest Fair, to be 
held Friday, November 13, in Mc¬ 
Cullough Gymnasium, will climax 
this year's fund raising campaign. 

W. H. Auden 
To Lecture 

W. H. Auden, English poet and 
essayist, will give the 1954 Aber¬ 
nathy Lecture on Tuesday, Jan¬ 
uary 12, Viola White, curator of the 
Abernethy library, announced this 
week. 

Auden is considered to be one 
of the most brilliant and influen¬ 
tial of modern English poets. Born 
and raised in England, he moved 
to America in 1939 and since that 
time has made this country his 
home. 

A leader In the modern school, 
Auden has never retreated to an 
ivory tower for his views of life 
but has rather met the work-a-day 
world on its own level, mixing elo¬ 
quence with the appeal of a pop¬ 
ular song and the technical terms 
of our age with the spoken lan¬ 
guage. He has, like Yeats and Eliot, 
rejected the traditional atmosphere 
of conventional English poetry for 
expression by colloquialism. 

An early Iconoclast and pessi¬ 
mist, Auden has since undergone 
a change of outlook through the In¬ 
fluence of religious conversbn. As 
Eliot writes through the Angellcan 
Canthollc pen, so Auden speaks the 
Evangelican Protestant voice. 

Collaborating with Stephen 
Spender and Louis MacNiece, Au¬ 
den visited Spain during its Civil 
War. The result was his poem

Barbara Fitzgerald Shines 
In Williams’ Tragic Drama 


By’ Mel Gusow 

The Middlebury College Players 
have neatly spliced together the 
loose fibers of Tennessee William’s 
fragmentary and somewhat incon¬ 
clusive tragedy "Summer and Smoke” 
into a well acted and compassionate 
probing of the human soul. 

The play itself, on Broadway a 
critical success and a public fail¬ 
ure, investigates the universal and 
standard theme of the spirit ver¬ 
sus the flesh. The young but spin- 
sterish minister’s daughter, Alma, 
representing the spirit (which per¬ 
vades the human like smoke), loves 
the handsome John Buchanan, the 
symbol of the body, of man’s phy¬ 
sical and surface desires (the rays 
of summer). 

Flesh And Spirit 

The conflict between these cen¬ 
tral characters is heightened by 
the appearance of Rosa Gonzales, 
a woman of the flesh, a direct con¬ 
trast to the prim Alma, and an at¬ 
traction, of course, to John. Their 
relationship provokes the turning 
point of "Summer and Smoke,” a 


scene in which Rosa’s tavern keep¬ 
ing father slays John’s father, the 
respectable Dr. Buchanan, Sr. As 
a direct result of this violent ac¬ 
tion, John realizes that there is 
a place for a soul in his symbolic 
chart of the human anatomy. But 
Alma has changed too. John has 
risen and has attained the spirit; 
Alma has fallen and is seeking the 
flesh. "The tables have turned . . .,” 
says Alma to John. "You’ve come 
around to my old way of thinking 
and I to yours, like two people ex¬ 
changing a call on each other at 
the same time, and each one find¬ 
ing the other one gone out, the door 
locked against him and no one to 
answer the bell.” And here is where 
Williams leaves the play, the char¬ 
acters reversed but still incompat¬ 
ible - Alma buzzing the bell and 
John marrying an Inconsequential 
adolescent. 

Fitzgerald Radiant 
In the extremely difficult role of 
Alma, Barbara Fitzgerald is called 
upon to be simultaneously righteous.

Chest Drive 


Mead Chapel Manual Carillon Requires 
Strength And Stamina To Produce Music 


The entire student body and faculty will be solicited 
next week for Community Chest donations. If the college 
were to contribute as a whole, there could be little doubt 
that the $2,800 goal would be reached. In the past, however, 
only a disappointing percentage of the men have given to 

the fund. •. , , „ , ,, , 

One possible reason for this lack of support could be 
that the results of such drives do not seem immediate and 
apparent. Students in general tend to distrust causes with 
lofty goals when they cannot personally see the work being 
done. Undergraduates want to know if their donations will 
aid organizations of real value. , . ,, 

The list of this year’s chanties should convince them 
that their money will be put to good use. Porter Hospital is, 
of course, very close to us at Middlebury and any aid which 
they might receive should produce immediate and apparent 

b tnC Several of the other charities are operating within the 
New England area although their activities are not so notice¬ 
able The Jimmy Fund has built a hospital in Boston where 
children afflicted with cancer can receive proper medical at¬ 
tention. The Red Cross and the Salvation Army have units 
established in every sizeable community in the country. 
The American Heart Association, the Celebral Palsy bund, 
and the March of Dimes are all national organizations which 
provide assistance wherever it is needed. 

The American Friends Service Committee has been one 
of our greatest assets in establishing international under¬ 
standing through rehabilitation work abroad. 

The last three organizations requesting aid are educa¬ 
tional groups: the Japanese International Christian Uni¬ 
versity, the Negro College Fund, and the World University 
Service’ Fund. These organizations are trying to offer to 
others the advantages which we already enjoy. 

If any student prefers to give to a chanty which is not 
listed this year, his donation will gladly be accepted and 
forwarded to the proper authorities. Another opportunity to 
give to this year’s drive will be the Community Chest fair 
to be held a week from Saturday. 

This collection of funds for eleven charities is not an 
impersonal drive. It is rather a highly personal appeal to the 
college community for support of organizations which de- 
pend on voluntary gifts to continue their humane work. 


Letter 


The views expressed In thi9 
letter are personal and dp not 
represent any official stand 
on the part of the college. There 
will be editorial comment on 
the letter next week - Editor’s 
Note. 


To the Editor: 

I would like to question the val¬ 
idity of an assumption expressed or 
Implied, which seems current this 
semester regarding the loyalty to¬ 
ward, and support of, our athletic 
teams. This assumption appears to 
be that the college community can 
properly feel enthusiasm for and 
lend real support only to a winning 
team. I know of course that it is 
rather easy to whoop it up for a 
winner and damn or ignore a loser; 
one might even say that such is 
human nature. But I feel very 
strongly that one who in Middle¬ 
bury would surrender to this ten 
dency is perpetrating harm to both 
himself and his college, in that he 
is aiding in tearing down that spirit 
of mutual appreciation which is so 
much of what we mean by Middie- 
bury, and denying himself something 
of growth that is a vital part of 
education. I cannot help thinking 
that one is remaining very small in¬ 
deed, in fact shrivelling jup in his 
own spirit, when he loses interest 
in, and indulges in, derogatory re¬ 
marks about his athletic team be¬ 
cause it has failed to win the num¬ 
ber of victories he desires. 

We all want to win, but the values 
of competition in any game of life 
may rest in something quite other 
than victory. They are to be found, 
essentially, I think, in the degree of 
effort we make, in what we put out 
in relation to what we have, in the 
fight we put up against the odds 
of life. Throughout human history, 
we find that decadence can set in 
from too much success as fully as 
from any other cause, and that 
strength and character can be won 
from putting out one's best against 
the greatest handicaps. Adversity 
makes the man, if the stuff out of 


which men arc made is there for 
the making. 

X have been deeply interested in 
this year’s football team from the 
start, and that interest has been 
increased by the conviction, gained 
from watching them and talking 
with them, that their spirit and 
determination is very high. I be¬ 
lieve that they love to play the 
game, and do their best to play it 
the best of their ability. At the same 
time, being a realist, I have to 
say that, appraising their chances 
at the start of the semester, I felt 
that it was logically out of place to 
expect that they could win more 
than one or two of their games, and 
certainly reasonable \o think that 
they possibly might not be able to 
win one. In football today, since 
every college we can meet on the 
gridiron draws upon scholarship re¬ 
sources, financially, which we do 
not and perhaps cannot match, we 
are condemned to fight an uphill 
battle in every game we play. On 
Saturday, when our team goes out 
for its last game against Vermont, 
there is no logical reason for expect¬ 
ing victory. We will be out-manned. 
I for one shall go hopefully, but 
my first hope is that the entire 
college will turn its back on an at¬ 
titude of fair-weather friend. 
Should that happen, and its at¬ 
titude be transmitted to the team 
(and teams are sensitive as barom¬ 
eters), and should the breaks come

By Catherine Rock 

As we all know, the whimsies pf 
the bell ringers in Mead Chapel 
have an inevitable effect upon their 
captive audience - the students and 
faculty of Middlebury. After wonder¬ 
ing whose caprices could lead from 
"A Mighty Portress” to "Twinkle 
Twinkle Little Star” in a matter of 
moments, we decided to meet and 
talk to these producers of sound. 

Anecdotes and Inspiration 
This year the bell ringers are 
Rodney Reid ’56 and Ottilie Timblin, 
a graduate student in the French 
School. Their playing of the bells 
which comprise the manual carillon 
in the Chapel has provided them 
with a source of innumerable anec¬ 
dotes as well as with a source of 
inspiration. 

Rodney became interested in play¬ 
ing the bells through his roommate, 
Joel Sherburne '56. who played them 
last year. Rodney spends about 25 
minutes a day at the carillon in 
what he calls a "co-operative effort” 
with Ottilie. While Rod is husky of 
stature, and is well able to maneuver 
the heavy levers which pull the 
ropes which in turn ring the bells, 
his companion in chiming is a petite 
blonde who must exert her full 
strength to perform her task. 

French Folk Songs 
Ottilie received her degree from 
Rockford College, in Rockford, 
Illinois, and became acquainted with 
Middlebury by spending two sum¬ 
mers at the French School at Bread - 
loaf. During the summer many 
French folk songs are played on the 
bells, and they came to represent a 
unique part of Middlebury to her. 
She used to watch them being play¬ 
ed with great interest, and when 
she returned to Middlebury this 
fall and discovered that there was 
a vacancy for a bell-ringer, she de¬ 
cided to learn to play them. As 
anyone who has ever seen her can 
tell you, Ottilie makes a quaint 
picture with her long pony-tail and 
mitten-clad hands, jumping up and 
down to make the chiming music 
which seems to most people like

his captive audience. The Chapel bells are heard daily. 


such an effortless part of the college. 
Her renditions are occasionally 
punctuated with cries of “I'm ex¬ 
hausted,” but she’ll invariably con¬ 
tinue until Rodney comes' to her 
rescue. Her variety of bell ringing, 
Ottilie claims, “is 5% musicianship 
and 95% manual labor!” 

Visitors 

Rodney and Ottilie are frequently 
surrounded by an admiring circle of 
awestruck college members or villag¬ 
ers. When visitors see the amount 
of work involved in manipulating 
the carillon, their usual reaction is 
“The next time I hear a mistake, 
I’ll understand the reason why.” 
"Many visitors say they don’t think 
I’m big enough to play the bells.” 
Ottilie says, “but while It’s strenuous, 
it gives me a feeling of triumph to 
know how many people can hear me 
so far away. 

Guests are often put to work hold¬ 
ing the music steady on the rack 
against the vibrations of the carillon. 
These visitors may see the names of 
all the past bell-ringers engraved 
for posterity on the walls, and they 
may look through the yellowed music 
which has accumulated on the floor 
through the years. On more than 
one ccasion Mr. Tillinghast and 


other professors have requested 
changes in repertoire and old num¬ 
bers have been resurrected from 
this morgue on the floor/ 

Elbow Grease 

Adding to the atmosphere are the 
families of pigeons who inhabit the 
Chapel steeple, and have made the 
whole area ‘‘quite well pigeonized,” 
according to Ottilie. Don Fredrick¬ 
son '54, tolls the low tenor "E” bell 
each morning at ten o’clock, and just 
before Sunday services. This bell is 
the only one which must be pulled 
in the old fashioned manner with 
a rope, using nothing but elbow 
grease and good will ! 

The only limitation placed on the 
music which may be played, is that 
no music offensive to anyone in 
meditation shall be played at any 
time. The selections themselves are 
left to the discretion of the bell 
ringers. 

If you ever have a free moment 
around 5:30 in the afternoon and 
are in the mood for either laughs 
or spiritual elevation, just climb the 
stairs above the balcony in the 
Chapel and meet Rodney and 
Ottilie. It’ll be an experience, and 
they’ll be glad to see you ! 


Fitzgerald 


(Continued from Page 1) 
frightened, affected and spiritual 
She must change her personality 
from that of a timid nervous- 
laughing dedicated soul, whose em¬ 
otional confusion is called a dop- 
pelganger, to that of the determined 
and defeated friend of the travel¬ 
ing salesmen. Her attractiveness 
must peep out of her puritanical 
portrayal of the bearer of a cross 
Miss Fitzgerald does this all - to 
perfection. Her speech, her manner¬ 
isms. her facial expressions, create 


a vibrant performance. Like a danc¬ 
er, she uses her hands to tell the 
story. The self conscious twisting 
and caressing of her ring suggests 
the reserve and insecurity of Alma, 
and the southern "broad A” accent 
expresses her refinement and atti- 
tudinization. 

There is no doubt that Miss 
Fitzgerald radiates, but most of the 
other players are more than ade¬ 
quate. The playwright envisioned 
John as "a Promethean figure, 
brilliantly and restlessly alive in 
stagnant society" and George Tut¬ 
tle looks the part even if his act¬ 
ing is not entirely convincing. I 
wonder if, perhaps, he does not pro¬ 
ject a bit too much roguishness 
rather than the desired self con¬ 
fidence and conceit. He does, how¬ 
ever come through admirably in 
his big scene in the second act 
wherein he is confronted by the 
imminency of his father’s death. 
An emotional peak is reached as 
Tuttle, with great intensity, ac¬ 
cuses Alma of being a "white-blood¬ 
ed” spinster. 

In the supporting roles Judith 
Hart as the childlike Mrs. Wine- 
miller, Lynn Fishtr as the volup¬ 
tuous Rosa Gonzales, Mark Brown 
as Archie Kramer, the traveling 
salesman, and Margaret Zornow as 
the gossipy Mrs. Bassett are per¬ 
fectly cast. The principal scene in¬ 
volving Mrs. Bassett, the meeting 
of Alma’s club of young intellec¬ 
tuals, is a gem of satire. The com¬ 
edy team of Ringer and Strother, 
with an assist from Barbara Ham- 
mann, inject a penetrating comic 
note which is especially evident 
when silent Strother meekly sits on 
half a chair and awaits for public 
approval to read his verse play. 

Old Men 

Perhaps the weakest members of 


the cast are the old men, Reverend 
Winemiller and Dr. Buchanan. It 
is apparent from viewing “Sum¬ 
mer and Smoke” and many previous 
Player productions that the univer¬ 
sal portrait of an old man is the 
stereotype caricature. Oldness to 
these actors is interpreted by pro¬ 
jecting their voices from their 
chests in a series of forced grunts 
which are punctuated by asthmatic 
wheezes. Their hair is white and 
they dodder around the stage. This 
is extremely difficult at Middle¬ 
bury because of the small stage, 
but nevertheless it is a fact that 
all old men dodder. Even so, Clark 
MacCutcheon and Alfred Wilder as 
the two crumbling figures have 
their moments and, at times, do 
workmanlike jobs. 

Space Limitations 
But the small stage itself does 
present an obstacle, since "Sum¬ 
mer and Smoke” was meant to be 
displayed in a larger area, and, in 
fact, had its most successful run 
as an arena style play. There is 
little room at the Playhouse, of 
course, to suggest the expanse, es¬ 
pecially in the sky, which Williams 
desired, but the Players have still 
managed somewhat wonderfully, to 
squeeze three sets, a rectory, a doc¬ 
tor’s office, and a fountain in a 
park into one scene before which 
almost all the action takes place. 
At times the revolving platforms 
give the appearance of two subway 
trains on the same track headed in 
opposite directions, but, consider¬ 
ing the space limitations, the scene¬ 
ry is extremely well handled. 

Although the “pyrotechnic” dis¬ 
play resembles an erratic movie 
marquee, generally speaking the 
lighting is effective - especially 
in the early scenes in which the 
Winemiller’s * rectory is contrasted 


with the doctor’s office. The rectory 
is covered with a pale icy light, and 
the adjacent doctor’s office glows 
warm and orangey. Here, of course, 
the mind is once again contrasted 
with the body. Cold reason and 
warm flesh. 

Play Indecisive 

The acting and backstage work is 
as good as can be expected, but the 
play, as a whole, seems indecisive, 
or rather the decision which Wil¬ 
liams reaches is not as conclusive 
as it might have been. Now that 
John is the soul and Alma is the 
body, it seems apparent that the 
play should shift to reverse. I be¬ 
lieve that if John really has at¬ 
tained a soul he should help Alma 
regain hers. She grasps him for sup¬ 
port, but he instead turns to the 
juvenile Nellie Ewell, who, incident- 
ly, displays a fantastic change of 
character. In the first act she is 
a mere child. In the second act, 
a few months later, she is engaged 
to John. 

Although Charmian Lamble is 
excellent in the part of Nellie, 
John’s acceptance of her as a mar¬ 
riage partner is not entirely believ¬ 
able, unless he is not as emotion¬ 
ally and spiritually mature as Wil¬ 
liams thinks he is. If the author is 
suggesting that life and its tragedies 
have made John aware of his soul 
why'does he show this weakness 
in his character, this relationship 
with a young girl, who registers 
more on the side of the flesh than 
on the side of the spirit? To me, 
there is an inconsistency. 

But let me state again: there is

Engagement Rings Sell Well At Christmas 
Says John Baker, Middlebury Jeweler

The following article Is the 
sixth of a series of seven ar¬ 
ticles dealing with different 
Aspects of the town of Middle¬ 
bury. - Editor’s Note. 

By Margaret Moreau 
John T. Baker came to Middle¬ 
bury to establish his jewelry and 
watch repair business because, 
as he explained, "We liked the 
people, and we liked the country. 
Middlebury is a place to live.” Today 
he and his assistant, Gerald Con¬ 
nolly, are Just as enthusiastic about 
Middlebury as they were seven years 
ago. Mr. Baker continued by saying 
that although few businessmen 
would ever get wealthy in Middle¬ 
bury, the people themselves and the 
interest added by college activities 
make it a good place to do business. 

Middlebury’s businesses are grow¬ 
ing; new businesses and new man¬ 
agers for established firms are com¬ 
ing here all the time, the jeweler 
said. And an organization such as 
the Merchants Bureau, under the 
auspices of the Chamber of Com¬ 
merce, is working to make Main 
Street a better place for buying and 
selling. For instance, this croup was 
active in helping solve the village’s 
parking problem, and it is now plan¬ 
ning Christmas decorations that 
will include a symbolic scene as well 
as the traditional lights. 

Few Recessions 

If Middlebury is not the center of 
booming prosperity, Mr. Baker noted 
that it is also less hard hit by econ¬ 
omic recessions than more highly 
industrialized areas. However, an 
event like last week’s New York 
milk strike does affect business to 
some degree since many dairy farm¬ 
ers in the surrounding district ship 
into the New York milk shed. 

Watch Repairs 

Essentially, Middlebury remains 
the village shopping center of a rural 
area; and it is for such a public 
that Mr. Baker runs his store. Here 
are no fishing rods or refrigerators 
such as some urban jewelry stores 
sell. Here are a watch repair service 
and a shop which retails watches, 
clocks, some flat silver, jewelry, and 
pens. Here is a good selection of 
items ranging from diamond rings 
"for as much as you want to pay” 
to bubble guards which sell for 35 
cents. Careless fraternity and soror¬ 
ity members keep the bubble guard 
business booming. 

The jewelry shop’s busiest seasons 
are, as one might expect, around 
Christmas and graduation times. 
The engagement and wedding ring 
business, however, is fairly steady. 
Yet, Mr. Baker stated, no business¬ 
man can forsee a season’s sales; the 
buying public is always unpredict¬ 
able. One year a number of watches 
will be sold, and the next one, 
jewelry will be more popular. 

Financial Responsibility 
“Although the Jewelry business 
seems glittery,” Mr. Baker remarked, 
“it is not easy.” The work itself 
is precise and tiring on the nerves, 
and there is also a good deal of 
financial responsibility involved. Mr. 
Baker is not only responsible for

his own merchandise, but he is also 
responsible in case of Are or theft 
for property left for repair. 

About half his business from col¬ 
lege students, Mr. Baker estimated, 
is for watch repairs. He emphasized 
that a watch is a delicate mechan¬ 
ism and should be treated as such. 
The average watch, he said, Is about 
one hundred times as sensitive as 
most of the lab instruments we use; 
It starts and stops 18,000 times an 
hour. There is one watch ailment 
which most students could prevent; 
It results from the condensation 
which can form inside the watch 
when an active skier experiences a 
sudden cool-off in a snow bank. 

Only Irish Watchmaker 

Both Mr. Baker and his assistant 
Mr. Connolly are graduates of 
schools of horology, otherwise 
known as watchmaker’s institutes. 
Mr. Connolly has the possible dis¬ 
tinction of being the only Irish 
watchmaker in the country; at least 


that’s what salesmen have told him. 
He thinks there may be a few others, 
but he does not consider the Irish 
temperament conducive to watch¬ 
making. “Of course,” he added, 
"after the first year, you forget 
about temperament.” 

Rotary Club 

With about fifty other local bus¬ 
iness and professional men, Mr. 
Baker belongs to Middlebury’s 
branch of the Rotary Club. This 
organization recently bought some 
of the equipment now being used 
by high sahool students in the 
driver training program, and it also 
helps support a Vermont crippled 
children’s camp. 

As a progressive businessman in 
the community, John T. Baker is 
more than satisfied with Middlebury 
and its people. But he is also work¬ 
ing with other merchants and 
groups to make the village an even 
better place to buy and sell. 


ROTC Addition 
Work Proceeds 

Construction on a new RQTC sec¬ 
tion of the Field House is progres¬ 
sing at' a rapid rate. Located at 
the rear of the building outside the 
locker rooms, the addition has Just 
been framed in, and the pouring of 
the floor 1s scheduled for next 
week. 

The Increase in plant is a move 
designed by the college to alleviate 
the pressure formed by the short¬ 
age of offices and working space. 
The Whole ROTC unit will move 
into the addition, and the Athletic 
Department will move into the re¬ 
maining offices in the front of the 
building, using the upstairs rooms 
for storage and classes. The Russell 
Construction Company from Rut¬ 
land was given the contract for the 
more important operations while 
the building and grounds depart¬ 
ment will be doing the finishing 
work, inside. 

Having worked for a month and a 
half already, the company should 
be finished by the end of the next 
month. The addition is 100 feet in 
length and two stories high. On the 
first floor the area is divided into 
an administrative office, an armory, 
and three offices for the teaching 
staff. In addition a corridor running 
from the locker rooms to the out¬ 
side will be available for men com¬ 
ing from the gym. 

Stairs placed in the corridor will 
lead to the second story which will 
house a fifty foot rifle range. The 
floor will extend over the south end 
of the addition, covering the offi¬ 
ces and part of the ski room. Five

shooting alleys and their reflectors 
will be placed so that the students 
will be shooting south. In between 
the range and the main gym there 
will be a long storage room. 

The type of construction is the 
same as in the whole Field House; 
concrete blocks for the first floor 
and, as in the south end, frame and 
clapboard for the second floor. The 
roof Is practically flat, and vul- 
can heating will be used for the 
whole section.

Religious Emphasis Program to be 
held December 3 through 5, it was 
announced this week by Walter

Dutch Girl Visits Family Of Midd Student 9 
Switching International Living Experiment 



These Dutch students were entertained this summer in Buffalo, 
N. Y., as part of the Experiment in International Living. Lannie Os¬ 
borne '54 was one of the American hosts. 


The following article is the 
seventh and last in a series of 
articles dealing with foreign 
attitudes towards the United 
States as they impressed stu¬ 
dent travelers - Editor's Note. 

By Margaret Dickie 
"To me the Experiment wss a very 
worthwhile project to undertake 
during the summer vacation.” Lan¬ 
nie Osborn '54 commented when 
asked about Marianne Leelander, 
the Dutch student whom the Os¬ 
borns entertained in their home 
last August as a part of the Experi¬ 
ment in International Living. 

She added: "Marianne felt strange 
at first in such a large family as 
ours - there were 17 of us this 
summer - since she is an only 
child, but we felt as though we got 
to know her better in the last few 
weeks of the Experiment when She 
got to know us better.” 

Marianne, a fifth year English 
major at the University of Amster¬ 
dam, was one (and the only wo¬ 
man) in a group of seven Dutch 
students ranging in ages from 18 to 
31 who visited families in Buffalo, 
New York, under the Experiment. 

New Paltz 

Marianne came to Buffalo for her 
homestay on August 9, after a two- 
week orientation period with the 
group at New Paltz State Teachers 
College, New Paltz, New York. Dur¬ 
ing the homestay, the experimenters 
are received as a member of the 
family as well as enjoying the 
privileges of the family. 

Lannie found Marianne who had 
also been an experimenter in Eng¬ 
land very unversed in the arts of 
cooking and homemaking. In Hol¬ 
land, the college students often 
overlook the practical side of life 
in their intellectual pursuit. Mari¬ 
anne, it seems, had difficulty even 
with making her bed. 

Marianne found it difficult to 
keep up with the American pace of 
living as the Dutch are a slower 
moving people. She rarely talked 
about her family and affairs per¬ 
haps because it. brought back un¬ 
pleasant memories. Her father h.« 
died in a concentration camp. How- 
e.ver, Marianne was not an introvert 
by any means. When it came time 
to do something with a group she 
was very excited. "She was very 
easy to please because she did not 
always want to run around like the 
Americans do in Europe. I think 
that she came to enjoy the summer 
in America and she seemed content 
although she never expressed this 
feeling outwardly,” says Lannie. 

Marianne was always cheerful and 
wanted to learn the most that she 
could of the wealthy country Ameri¬ 
ca about which she had heard. 
When asked what the Dutch ex¬ 
pected to find in America, she 
added, "We think that every Ameri¬ 
can is rich and has an Indian in 
their home.” 

"Marianne seemed accustomed to 
traveling alone and thought noth¬ 
ing of taking any trip,” Lannie 



bernsol’s

comments. “She asked if she could 
go to Chicago, having seemingly no 
comprehension of the distance in¬ 
volved; but she was very under¬ 
standing when we explained how far 
it was and how difficult it would be 
to go there." 

Some of her reactions were very 
interesting. For instance, upon see¬ 
ing a new low-cost housing project 
at the waterfront she commented, 
"My, isn't that rather Socialistic?" 

One of the aspects of America of 
which Marianne really expressed 
her appreciation was the weather. 
In Holland, they cannot lie on the 
beach in a bathing suit and be 
actually hot. Therefore, Marianne 
enjoyed the beach even on the cold¬ 
est days. 

Every Tuesday during the home- 
stay, the entire group of Experi¬ 
menters and a member of each 
family with which they were stay¬ 
ing would get together for the day. 
Trips for these days had been plan¬ 
ned in two preliminary meetings of 
all the families which were to en¬ 
tertain the experimenters with the 
leader, Norman Brown, a last year's 
experimenter in France who is now 
in second year of Harvard Medical 
School. 


Since Buffalo is primarily indus¬ 
trial, the students had'an excellent 
opportunity to visit many factor¬ 
ies. Their trips included excursion* 
to an ice cream plant, the Ford as¬ 
sembly plant, the Dunlap Rubber 
and tire factory and a small factory 
where furniture was made by hand. 
Also included in the group activities 
was a sports party where the stu¬ 
dents learned how to play baseball, 
dinner at night at Niagara Falls 
where the experimenters were im¬ 
pressed with the lights, and a final 
farewell party a la American. 

Lannie concluded that the group 
activities were very successful al¬ 
though the lack of girls made the 
social meetings a little different 
than they might have been with a 
more mixed group. Also, the re¬ 
sponse in Buffalo was very good 
toward the group and many peo¬ 
ple who were not directly connected 
with the Experiment opened their 
homes to the Dutch students. 

The experimenters left Buffalo on 
September 6, for a free week of 
travel which most of them spent 
sight-seeing in New York before re¬ 
turning to Holland after a summer 
which, they all agreed, was well 
spent.

Panthers To Meet Catamounts In Finale

Norwich Tops Panthers 38-27 
As Late Midd Surge Falls Short 


By Oliver Morton 

Staving off a last period rally 
by a fighting Middlebury eleven, 
the Norwich Cadets shaded the 
Panthers, 38-27, in the fifty-sixth • 
meeting of the two teams, before a 
Homecoming crowd of 3000 at Sa¬ 
bine Field in Northfield, last Sat¬ 
urday. 

Trailing 32-13, late in the fourth 
quarter, Middlebury struck for two 
quick touchdowns. Starting on their I 
own 33 the Panthers drove to the 
Norwich 11, mainly on the strength 
of two fine runs by quarterback 
Dick Maktn. After Prank Gianforti 
carried to the eight, Makln tossed 
to Buzz Allen for the score, and 
Makin converted. 

Midd then tried an onsides kick 
and recovered on the Cadet 41.' 
Two plays later Makin fired a 41 
yard aerial to Sonny Dennis who 
went into the end zone standing 
up. Makin again converted and the j 
Panthers trailed by only five j 
points, 32-27 with a minute re- j 


maining. However, their attempt 
at a second onsides boot was 
thwarted as Norwich got possesion 
of the ball and moved quickly to 
notch their sixth marker, Jack 
Lucido skirting left end for the 
final thirteen yards. 

Wide Open 

It was a wide open, free scoring 
contest from the outset, both teams 
constantly bringing the crowd to 
its feet with their great show of 
offensive power. A trio of Norwich 
backs led by quarterback Don Pas- 
salacqua, who scored three touch¬ 
downs himself and passed for two 
others, sparked the Horsemen, while 
Makin, Dennis, John Zabriskie, Dick 
Baxter, and freshman Roger Tirone 
supplied the offensive punch for 
Duke Nelson’s boys. 

First Blood 

Middlebury scored first, early in 
the opening period, when Tirone 
capped a fifty-eight yard march 
with a 13 yard touchdown pass to 
Baxter. The conversion was missed. 


Norwich promptly tied the score on 
a quarterback sneak by Passalac¬ 
qua from the five. The Cadets tal¬ 
lied twice in the second stanza, 
once on a 66 yard pass play from 
Passalacqua to Chet Szwejkowski, 
and again a five yard end run by 
Passalacqua, and the first "half 
scoring seemed over. But Midd 
countered just before the midway 
point when, from the Norwich 47, 
Makin threw to Dennis who took 
the ball on the 30 and twisted away 
from several would-be tacklers to 
pay dirt. Tirone kicked the point 
and the half ended with the Panth¬ 
ers behind, 19-13, 

Norwich took the second half 
kickoff and moved 52 yards, on 
running plays alone, to score, Pas¬ 
salacqua plunging over from the 
three. Moments later, Lucido in¬ 
tercepted a Makin pass and Pas¬ 
salacqua threw a screen-pass to 
captain Chuch Pulsford who scamp- I 
ered 27 yards for the Horsemen’s 
fifth six-pointer. 


Sailors Drop 
Schell Trophy 
TopsAtM.I.T. 

Midd’s high hopes of dominating 
the New England Intercollegiate 
sailing circuit was partially sub¬ 
dued last weekend by the strong 
competition encountered at Coast 
Guard’s Schell Trophy. Pat Hin- 
man and Stan Holt, the team that 
copped the Hewitt Trophy, placed 
only ninth in a field of twelve 
boats. Pat Hinman with crew, Skip 
Ramsdell, led the Midd Sailers by 
accounting for 76t4 of the 126V4 
point total. Pat finished consistent¬ 
ly fifth or sixth with the exception i 
of a tie for first in one race. Stan, 
in the meantime, was lagging be¬ 
hind with only fifty points which 
situated him about ninth in the 
"A” division. A smooth sailing Navy 
team won the regatta with 203 
points followed by Harvard, Coast 
Guard, Brown, Merchant Marine 
Academy, M. I. T., Rhode Island, 
Tufts, Middlebury, Williams and 


Rhode Island School of Design. 

Only Partially 

Middlebury’s hopes were only par¬ 
tially subdued because at M. I. T. 
a Panther Quadruplet won a team 
race against Bowdoin which quali¬ 
fies Midd for the Fowle Trophy on 
Nov. 6 and 7. Middlebury won 2 
to 1. A team race is scored on a 
team’s (four crews) total points 
for one race equalling one point 
toward the final score.

Union Downs 
Harriers 26-30 

By Bill J. Meyer 

The Middlebury Harriers went 
down to their second defeat of the 
season last Friday as Dick Getz’s 
runners from Union won the race 
26-30. By capturing the first three 
positions, they made it impossible 
for Coach Brown’s team to win. 

Captain Don Stack and Elliot 
Schecter crossed the finish line of 
their home courses at Schenectady 
in a dead heat. These two runners 
led the race the entire way, and no 
one from either team was capable of 
extending them. 

Once again stitches hurt the Mid¬ 
dlebury cause. Captain Win Tre¬ 
maine was beginning to pick up 
on the leaders when one of those 
stitches that has hampered him 
all year struck him again. Fresh¬ 
man Robin Hagemeyer and Pete 
Redman were also slowed up by 
them. Another bad break came when 
Stan Hayward and Hagemeyer ran 
nearly 100 yards extra due to a 
misunderstanding of the course. 


UVM Favored Over 
Midd In State Classic 


By Pete Ncisser 

The day after tomorrow, the 
high-riding University of Vermont 
Catamounts invade Porter Field, to 
meet Middlebury in the classic 1953 
finale of both teams. 

If Vermont rides home Saturday 
night victorious, it will be due to 
the right arm of passing quarter¬ 
back Mike Seamans, a 20-year-old 
junior from Dorchester, Mass. 

The Massachusetts hurler, com¬ 
bining his efforts with end Nat 
Campana, a personable senior from 
Niagara Falls, and backs, A1 Mc- 
Lam, a sophomore halfback, and 
Jim Montgomery, speedy senior 
playing fullback, has managed to 
pass Vermont’s way through a 3- 
2-1 season so far. 

UVM has taken the measure of 
the Dartmouth JV, Rochester and 
Norwich, lost to Maine and North¬ 
eastern and tied St. Michael's. 

Last Saturday, against the North¬ 
eastern squad which posted a 6-1 
season slate, including victories over 
Bates and Massachusetts, Seamans 
kept his opponents impotent for 
three quarters, passing successfully 
all over the field. 

His performance earned him high 
praise from Northeastern coach Joe 
Zabliski, who described Seamans 
as the best passing quarterback 
he had seen this season. 


With this asset, Vermont coach 
Ed Donnelly has set up most of 
his offense on passing, leaving only 
ocasional running assignments to 
Montgomery, McLam and halfback 
Ed Beck. 

Using T and split-T formations, 
Seamans usually calls routine pass¬ 
es, but the finesse of their execu¬ 
tion could befuddle any opponent. 
This favorite play sends Campana, 
left end, down the far side, draw¬ 
ing the defensive secondary with 
him. Then either Montgomery or 
man-in-motion McLam tuck in be¬ 
hind the line backer to nab a short 
pass in clear territory. 

Sometimes, for diversion, Seamans 
will charge, in a mock quarterback 
sneak, to pick up a short aerial 
from Montgomery, but ordinarily 
it's the quarterback who throws. 

Vermont does have a ground at¬ 
tack, which the Catamounts em¬ 
ploy only occasionally and for var¬ 
iety. But most running comes off 
the left side, the stronger side of 
the line by far, and usually takes 
the form of straight bucks by Mont¬ 
gomery. 

Thus, with a strong passing set-up 
and one of the best quarterbacks 
in these parts, Vermont comes to 
Porter Field the odds-on favorite 
on paper. However, when these two 
teams mix it up in the fall, paper 
favorites often leave disappointed. 


LupienReturns ToHoopsters 
Counts On Returning Vets 


By Ernest Lorch 
Popular Middlebury basketball 
mentor Tony Luplen returned to 
Middlebury last, Monday evening 
to lead the hoopmen in their initial 
practice of the 1953-54 basketball 
season. Mr. Lupien, who spent the 
major part of the summer as Mana¬ 
ger and General Manager of the 
Corning Team of the Pony League, 
stated his pleasure at returning to 
Middlebury and leading the Panth¬ 
ers in what he termed "Middlebury’s 
most ambitious basketball sche¬ 
dule." 

Dennis Honorable Mention 
All-American 

As the continuous bearer of happy 
news for Middlebury sports en¬ 
thusiasts, Tony reported that Al¬ 
fred “Sonny” Dennis had been 
named to an honorable mention 
spot on the coaches National All- 
American Basketball Team. Sonny 
was the only State player named 
to this honor and well did he de¬ 
serve it, leading the Panthers in 
scoring for the second straight sea¬ 
son and well outdistancing the rest 
of Vermont’s basketball stars. No 
Middlebury fan will ever forget 
his tremendous performance in the 
Middlebury-UVM game last March, 
when he scored 31 points and led 
the Panthers to a tie for the Ver¬ 
mont State Conference Champion¬ 
ship. 

Hart Missing 

Hart, Middlebury’s freshman cent¬ 
er and the nation’s third leading 
rebounder, will not be with the 
team this first semester because of 
academic failures, and it will be 
this spot that Coach Luplen will 
find it hardest to fill. Speed, de¬ 
fense, and a greater amount of 
outside shooting will be Tony’s 
principal aims to offset this im¬ 
portant loss in height. To quote 
the coach, "The outside shot is 
like an end run - you need it to 
make your inside, driving game 
work.” 

Five Seniors Lead Squad 
With a nucleus of seven return¬ 
ing varsity men led by five seniors, 
the team’s expected strength will 
number 16 men. The squad hopes 
that in three week* of intensive 
practice before the Thanksgiving 


Recess, two or three capable fresh¬ 
men can be found to fill the vacant 
slots. In this type of fast, running 
basketball, Mr. Lupien said, no man 
can be expected to play the full 
game and capable replacements for 
the starters must be found. 

The returning seniors are: 
Guards, Bob Perkins, Ed Killeen, 
Art Bass and forwards, Rog Colton, 
and Jim Hunt. Besides high-scor¬ 
ing Sonny Dennis, Coach Lupien 
also hopes that Cy Aflndsen, leader 
of last year's Freshman Squad, will 
be able to take up some of the 
slack caused by the loss of Hart 
and the graduation of Captain 
Freddy Brooks. 

Season Opens Dec. 2 

On December 2 the varsity team 
will open its home schedule against 
Clarkson: and in preparation for 
this and other tilts, the team will 
engage in three pre-season games, 
two of these with Fort Ethan Allen, 
away on November 16 and at home 
on the 30th. 

Dartmouth Tourney 

During the Christmas recess, the 
Panthers will take part, for the 
first time, in the Dartmouth Tour¬ 
ney and will meet the host team in 
the first round. Other expected 
opponents: Amherst or Harvard In 
the second round and Brown, Colby, 
or Wesleyan in the third. The team 
is shooting for a fine record at this 
vacation tournament. An important 
secondary purpose will be the gain¬ 
ing of important experience for the 
ensuing campaign. 

Student’s Attention 

As a closing note, Coach Lupien 
had a word of thanks for the stu- 
aent body for the fine support the 
team received in his two seasons 
here. He stated student support is a 
great factor in the winning of 
basketball games. The home crowd’s 
proximity to the floor and its vocal 
support is often the deciding fac¬ 
tor in a close contest. “This is our 
most ambitious schedule,” stated 
the coach, and this reporter feels 
that it is imperative that the stu¬ 
dents continue to support the team 
in ever-increasing numbers, both 
at home and away. 




MIDDLEBURY COLLEGE, MIDDLEBURY, VT., NOVEMBER 5, 1953 


Old Rivalry Filled 
With Tradition 


By Artie Goldberg I 

In a few more weeks, as the col- 1 
lege football season draws to a 
close, th8se so-called "big* games 
will be played on many gridirons 
over the country. Harvard will meet 
Yale in the big Yale Bowl, Penn and 
Cornell will tangle before a huge 
crowd at Franklin Field on Thanks¬ 
giving Day, and Purdue and Indiana 
will battle it out for the Old Oaken 
Bucket. All these games are tradi- 
tionals, the ones the players, stu¬ 
dents and old grads want to win 
most. Saturday the Green Mountain 
version of a "traditional” takes 
place when the University of Ver¬ 
mont Catamounts invade Porter 
Field and take on the Middlebury 
Panthers for the forty-sixth time In 
the long series. 

Midd and U.V.M. began playing 
football in 1894 when they met three 
times. The Cats took the first con¬ 
test 12-0, but Middlebury came back 
a few weeks later and took the 
second encounter by a 14-0 score. 
The third game, arranged for a neu¬ 
tral field at Vergennes, was started 
In a snowstorm and ended in a 
free-for-all involving both players 


and spectators. This incident term¬ 
inated relations athletically speak¬ 
ing, with the upstate school for sev¬ 
eral years. 

Memories 

One oi the most memorable games 
with Vermont occurred in 1914, 
when Midd captained by Charles S. 
"Casey” Jones battled the Cata¬ 
mounts led by Lou Little, the 
present head coach of Columbia, to 
a 0-0 tie in a foot of snow at Cen¬ 
tennial Field. In more recent times 
the 1948 game and the last meet¬ 
ing at Porter Field in 1951 standout. 
In '48 a heavily favored Panther 
team found themselves trailing 
12-6 late in the fourth quarter. 
With a minute and a half remaining 
they scored the tying touchdown and 
then sent their captain John Corbi- 
sero through the line for the extra 
point and a 13-12 victory. In ’51 
Midd was the underdog but rose up 
to hand U.V.M. the worst shellacking 
of the series, 64-12. 

Some Old Names 

Another game of particular in¬ 
terest today is the one in 1929, when 
Midd captain Sam Guarnaccia 
closed out his football career by 


leading the state champioas to a 
19-0 win, scoring all three touch¬ 
downs. The man who made the 
holes for him up front was a Sop¬ 
homore center named Duke Nelson. 

The game itself, however, is not 
the whole story of the Middlebury- 
U.V.M. rivalry. Before days were 
actually set aside for it, the Ver¬ 
mont game served as an unofficial 
Homecoming as most alumni were 
anxious to come back to the big 
one. In 1928 the "Pee-Rade” featur¬ 
ing wierdly dressed freshmen was 
instituted. The frosh paraded at 
half time trying to heckle the Ver¬ 
mont rooting section and were usual¬ 
ly successful until 1936, when a 
horde of irate Vermonters squashed 
it. The custom of the President 
carrying Gamelial Painter's cane 
in victory is well known by every¬ 
one, but in 1920 Friday night pre¬ 
game banquets were started and 
these evolved into the present day 
pep rally with band, bonfire and 
cheerleaders. 

The contest Saturday probably 
won't be broadcast coast to coast 
nor will Grantland Rice write 
about it in his Monday column, 
but in its own way and to the play¬ 
ers, coaches, students and alumni of 
both schools, this is "it” and means 
just as much, and has the same 
type of tradition as Penn-Cornell 
^nd Harvard-Yale. 


A1 “Sonny” Dennis Is Chosen 

Athlete Of The Week 



The smashing plunges by John 
(6.8 yards per carry) Zabriskie , . . 
the determined passing and running 
of Dick Makin . . .the exceptionally 
aggressive pass catching and power 
driving of "Barney” Baxter . . . the 
successful adaptability of Buzz Al¬ 
len (he played at least three dif¬ 
ferent positions) . . . the leader¬ 
ship drive and fiery play exhibited 
by game captain Joe Durkin . . . 
all were in the running for the 
weekly outstanding athletic award 
at Midd, but for his greatest de¬ 
fensive game in three seasons, com¬ 
bined with many tremendous glue¬ 
fingered catches, and even more 
amazing, his long-to-be-remember¬ 
ed runs, Alfred "Sonny” Dennis wins 
this week’s “Player of the Week” 
distinction. 

The highly-heralded wing-back 
of Duke Nelson’s offensive back- 
field hails from Summit, N. J., 
where he competed in athletics 
throughout his high school career. 
He was a letterman there for three 
years in track (one during which 
he was captain) and basketball, 
two seasons in football, and one in 
soccer. Although he has starred 
for two season's under the auspices 
of basketball mentor Tony Lupien, 
and done likewise under the patient 
guiding of track coach Arthur 
Brown, last week’s performance 
against Norwich University was 


proof that "Sonny's” athletic abil¬ 
ities have blossomed into maturity 
as a football player. 

Although Midd was defeated by 
Norwich 38-27 at Northfield, two 
of the most skillfully-executed plays 
of the day were connected with 
this week’s award winner. In the 
second quarter, Dennis plucked a 
Roger Tirone pass out of the clear 
autumn sky and swivel-hipped, 
twisted, and feinted his way into the 
end zone some twenty-five yards 
away. Not to be outdone by Chet 
Szwejkowski, who sprinted 66 yards 
for Norwich on a similar play, ”A1- 
fie” terminated the Panther scoring 
in the closing moments of the 
game. With another dexterious 
grasping of the pigskin . . .this 
time from Dick Makin . . .“Sonny” 
astounded fans, coaches, sportscasi- 
ers, writers, and especially three 
would-be Norwich tacklers by weav¬ 
ing his long legs, cutting ‘on a dime,’ 
and galloping 45 yards for a T. D. 

With all due respect to Messers 
Zabriskie, Makin, Baxter, Allen and 
Durkin, our votes go to Alfred 
“Sonny” Dennis as the October 31, 
1953, "Player of the Week.” 

(Dennis will be heard over W. R. 
M. C. (750 on your dial) Thursday 
evening at 10:00 p.m.)
